Sarah completed her PhD in Radiation Physics at University College London in 2008 and then worked in both the UK (at Cambridge) and the USA (at Stanford) as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular imaging. In 2013, she returned to the UK as a Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and was promoted to Reader in Biomedical Physics in 2017.
Richard obtained his PhD from Oxford in 2004. Postdoctoral positions at Bath and Oxford led to an EPSRC Fellowship in 2009. In 2013, Richard moved to the Royal Veterinary College. In 2015, Richard was made Reader of Biomechanics and he continues to work on aerodynamics, sensing, control, and bio-inspired robotics.
Dr Peter Bonfield joined world leading building science centre BRE in 1992 as Senior Scientific Officer and rose through the ranks to become Chief Executive of the BRE Group in January 2012. A materials engineer with a PhD in wind energy and the design of turbine blades, Peter has led major initiatives in these areas of new build and existing housing, as well as in commercial and public sector buildings.
I have studied physics up to PhD degree in Hannover, did a postdoc at Yale University, Habilitation in Hamburg and am chair of Quantum Matter in Birmingham since 2007.
I completed my BSc in Electronic Engineering in 2008 at Universidad de los Andes, Colombia, my MPhil in Nanotechnology in 2010 at the University of Cambridge, and my DPhil in Materials in 2015 at the University of Oxford studying new passivation technologies for silicon solar cells.
I obtained my PhD from Lund University in Sweden, and have previously held a Swedish Research Council Postdoctoral Stipend at University of Cambridge and a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at University of East Anglia.
I did my undergraduate in Physics at the University of Florence (Italy) and received the Diploma and PhD degree in Physics in 1993 and 1997. From 1997 to 1999 I was Assistant Research Professor at the Technical University of Denmark. From September 2004 I moved to Cardiff University to start new research in Biophotonics. In 2007 I was promoted to Reader and in 2011 to a Personal Chair.
I obtained a PhD from Stanford in 2002 (with J. P. Collman) for work on metalloporphyrins as oxygen reduction electrocatalysts, and a Postdoctorate at Harvard with G. Whitesides working on unconventional forms of microfabrication and energy conversions.
Andrew is Director of Partnerships and leads EPSRC's strategic interactions with key partners within the university, business, regional and international sectors to ensure the successful implementation of the EPSRC Delivery Plan and the contribution this brings to the wider objectives of UKRI. Andrew is also responsible for EPSRC’s Impact agenda and our approach to Public Engagement.
Professor Veronica Bowman is a senior principal statistician at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and is internationally recognised as the lead technical expert for Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) knowledge management. She specialises in uncertainty calculation and communication and Bayesian inference. In particular, she has spent many years applying Bayesian methodology and data fusion techniques to problems in the military domain as well as working with academia to improve understanding of how uncertainty is propagated and how decisions should be taken under uncertainty. She was the founder and chair of the Calculating and Communicating Uncertainty Conference (CCU 2015), which bought together leading researchers from the field of uncertainty and instigated the EPSRC funded research into decision making under uncertainty.
Jack is currently a non-executive director of FTSE companies Mitie plc and TT Electronics plc, and until recently Laird plc. He is a Council Member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and on the Board of the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials. He recently co-chaired the UK Advanced Materials Leadership Council at the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. He is a serial entrepreneur and previously chaired advanced materials company Ilika plc which he took from a spin-out to the AIM market. He was awarded an OBE in 2015 for services to Science and Engineering. He holds degrees from Stanford University, the London School of Economics and Insead.
Imperial College London
I am the Professor of Chemical Physics at Imperial College London. I was awarded an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship in 2011, and since 2012 I have also been Adjunct Professor of Computational Chemistry at NTNU. I am Committee Member of the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group and Council Member of the Faraday Division.
I am a lecturer in geotechnical (ground) engineering. I want to find the best way to assess, preserve and strengthen our ageing transport infrastructure, so that it is fit for purpose in the 21st Century. I have undertaken field investigations, laboratory modelling and numerical simulations to better understand the behaviour of old (mainly Victorian) railway embankments, retaining walls and historic buildings.
Dr. Alexandra Brintrup is Lecturer in Digital Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Department and is leading the Manufacturing Analytics Research within the Institute for Manufacturing.
I completed an MEng in Engineering Science at Oxford University (1995), a MSc in Climate Change and Sustainability (2009), and a PhD in Energy/ecological economics (2015). Following a postdoctoral position at the University of Leeds (2015-2018), I have now taken up an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship at the University of Leeds (2018-2023).
Anju Brooker is Principal Scientist at Procter & Gamble company with 25 years experience in development of surfactants, polymers, nanotechnologies and multiple assignments in product development in the Fabric and Home Care categories.
I have travelled the world pursuing my mathematics career - after growing up in northern Australia, I studied at the Australian National University, MIT, and the University of Vienna. I held postdoctoral positions in Bristol and Kobe, and then was awarded my EPSRC fellowship, allowing me to return to the UK.
I graduated from University College London with a first in Mathematics, followed by a PhD with Matt Keeling at the University of Warwick. After two postdoctoral positions at Harvard and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I took up my fellowship at the University of Cambridge.
Jethro Browell is a Research Fellow at the University of Strathclyde's Institute for Energy and Environment where his research interests span all aspects of energy forecasting and associated decision-making in electricity markets and power system operation.
Alan has worked as a medicinal chemist for over 24 years and has been involved in the discovery of multiple clinical development candidates in several therapeutic areas including pain, cardiovascular, allergy and respiratory, urogenital and sexual health and has also been involved in the discovery of candidates in several non-traditional areas of chemistry such as synthetic vaccines.
I was awarded a PhD from the University of Nottingham in 1988 and continued there as an industrial researcher until 1994. I worked as a Software Engineer until 2009, when I returned to the Composites Research Group at the University of Nottingham as a Research Fellow.
David Bull holds the Chair in Signal Processing at the University of Bristol. His previous roles include Lecturer with the University of Wales, Cardiff, and Systems Engineer with Rolls Royce.
James received his PhD in 2007 from University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof Ley then spent two years at Université de Montréal with Professor Charette.
